Marla Simon​

Office Manager

After graduating from California State University at Northridge with a degree in Radio, Television, and Film, I started my career in the crazy world of local news and advertising. After 10 years I put my career on hold so I could be both a full-time mom and a caregiver to my mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

After it became clear that my daughters were strong, independent and amazing young women, I knew I was ready to rejoin the workforce. For several years, I worked for an organization that helped businesses incorporate in states across the country. It was very satisfying work but I felt something was missing.

This led me here to Goldfarb & Luu. After dealing with my mother’s journey, I learned how important it is to plan for one’s medical and financial affairs. It’s clear that at G&L, we provide answers to questions clients don’t even know to ask.

Professional Background

I thoroughly enjoy my role in helping Rebecca and Dinh manage all of the inner workings of the law firm. I share their dedication to treat every client like family and I welcome the opportunity to get to know each of our clients on a personal level.


In my spare time, my husband and I enjoy supporting UCLA athletic teams, especially women’s softball and going to dinner and movies. We are new empty nesters and have enjoyed the quiet and clean house. We love spending time with our daughters but our oldest is now living in Edinburgh studying for her Masters in Sports and International Development, while our youngest lives close by and we see her and her friends frequently.
